  1. Just in time for Christmas. These were a labor of love and I'm really happy how they finished up. Even so, I am so-o-o-o glad they are done. 8 cryptex boxes for the grand kids. I have no delusions about how the boxes will compare to the fancy electronic gadgets kids want these days, but maybe one day they'll be appreciated. I think I posted in progress pictures of these a while back but not sure. I actually started them in the summer but shelved them until closer to Christmas. Last week, I decided I needed another, really had to scratch to remember how I'd done everything, even had to go back and watch Carl Jacobson's excellent video on making them again. The code on each one is their birth day with "Z"=zero and "A"=1 etc. Steve
  2. Here are the latest recipe boxes. I found that when the top is cut off that it becomes shorter and the box becomes lager due to the sloping front. this created a slight problem when installing the metal hinges to line up the front of the box with the top. I compensated by going to the Rob Corson wooden dowel hinge on the cedar boxes I like that setup better and will do it on any future boxes. Also will do a separate tutorial on how it is done. Herb
  3. Got an email from a friend tonight, asking if I could make a cremation box for their uncle. Absolutely. How much? Consider it a gift. So now I need to design and make this. Likely walnut or mahogany. Stay tuned. Rule of thumb is one cubic inch per pound.
  4. Had a request from facility mgr at church for tissue boxes so they would not get crushed. So this is the beginning PIP. That small piece on the corner is tyo glue on the slide for a handle. view of the bottom dados r e test fit of bottom. After this discovered I had a gap on ends of slide so will have to fill that. More later this week
  5. Today ought to prove to be an interesting day..... A couple weeks ago I was contacted by KSMQ, a PBS station out of St. Paul, MN to set up a day they can come and do an interview and do some camera work for their series called "Off 90".... which is a program that features artis, culture and history in Southern Minnesota.... "Off 90", I suppose, is referreing to Interstate 90, which runs east & west through Southern Minnesota and right through my town.... One good thing I can say already.... my shop is the cleanest and most organized (if that) than it has been in over a year...... Here's a link to KSMQ's "Off 90" I'll let you know how it goes!
  6. I've used hide glue before to make some small boxes with no stress on the joints when finished. This project there may be some stress on them and I don't want them coming apart. The reason I used it before is the long open time so I can get all the sides and joints adjusted. Is this a good choice or should I use the normal Titebond?
  7. In my travels yesterday, I stopped in a gun store to look at a varmint rifle. The manager was my salesman. He's interested in displaying a couple pistol presentation boxes. Then, in the liquor store where I get my Dell Bac, that manager wants a steady supply of wine gift boxes. And, the owner of that knife and gun finishing supply house is interested in a few knife cases. Told them all that I'm slow. None seemed to mind. Looks like I'm gonna be busy for a while. Gotta get the table done and another rifle case. Then, start on little boxes. Fun times ahead.
  8. Been wanting to try making these and finally did. Took a couple of cut offs from Menards and made a thicker base Used one for the tops and there they are.
  9. Guess @John Moody has been sleeping late on Friday so here is what my week was like. Working on the pew boxes and in between made a spray. Other with exhaust and working on mahogany shelves for DIL . takes lots of clamps since materiL is to thin for dado or rabbit. this is what they will look like. We will be harvesting material for plaques Monday. My spray booth with inline fan for exhaust. I happen to have lots of acrylic panels from drugstores. Had to put a patch on one shelf and thought @John Morris might be interested in that lumber stamp. This mahogany was 6/4 x 20 inch x 14 foot.
  10. Now that school is out for the year, expect "back to school sales" to start in a week or two ;-) One item that I've gotten is the plastic pencil storage boxes. Generally run less than $1 and work well for small parts, small tool assortments, etc. Stack well, snap close, and most are translucent so you can get an idea for what's inside. Available at most office supply (Staples, OfficeMax=-Office Depot) and department store chains (Target, Walmart, etc.) or at dollar stores. They used to also run small bottles of Elmer's glue that were great for popping in a tool box, but recently they seem to have gone to "School Glue."

  13. I finished a project yesterday for a customer. I can't tell you right now I know much about these, but he is going to send me a picture when he gets them setup that might help. As I understand they are used to setup model train displays. A piece of foam is placed inside the frame and then the display is built on top but the section are made so they can be separated to move the display. Plans were for 4' sections but he was wanting 2' sections. So I made the modification and built two boxes out of poplar for his display. The boxes or displays had to be built so they could come apart but had to line up each time you put them together. I made a trip to Lowe's and got some 1/2" aluminum bar and found some 1/2'x5/8"x1" washers as they were called. I setup on the drill press to drill the holes in the same spot on each board using a 5/8" bit on one end and a 1/2" bit on the other end. I used epoxy to glue the pieces in place. The frame is made of 1" poplar and the corners are put together with pocket screws. Latches are added on the outside to hold the sections in place so they don't move while the display is setup. The pins and bushings were tight enough I don't think the latches were needed but they were on the plans so I put them on. I took a piece of the poplar and planed it down to 1/2" and made the corner feet that also hold the foam in place so it doesn't fall out when picked up. He was quite happy when he came by yesterday afternoon to pick them up. As I said earlier, I will post a picture showing them in used when he gets his display setup. He is doing a model train show in a couple of weeks and needed them. This was a fun project to work on
  14. Good day folks, we have been contacted by Virgie, she hit us up at our contact form at www.thepatriotwoodworker.com and she saw some of the fabulous work our Patriot Woodworkers have done in the past at our home page site. She wrote us this. Hello, I found your site by luck and admired the wood pieces you have designed. I wondered if you make and sell small tea boxes with a single compartment? We wrote her this Hello Virgie, we have many talented craftsmen in our club, would you like me to get you in touch with one? I am sure someone can build anything you need at a reasonable cost. Cheers! So, if anyone here wishes to have a little side paid gig, please Private Message me and I will give you her email for you to contact, she has indicated that she would love it if someone from here would take this task on.
